Calculates the functional complementarity for the rows of a web
A community-level measure of ecological niche complementarity measured as the total branch length of a functional dendrogram based on qualitative differences in visitor assemblages between plants.
A bipartite interaction web, i.e.~a matrix with higher (cols) and lower (rows) trophic levels.
A distance accepted by the function
The linkage method to be used by
Option to analyse the web as binary or as weighted network. Default is weighted=TRUE, but analysis presented in Devoto et al. (2012) uses weighted=FALSE.
fc measures community-level ecological niche complementarity as the total branch length of a functional dendrogram based on qualitative differences in visitor assemblages between plants. For details see Devoto et al. (2012).
The value of fc, which is not standardised and lies anywhere between 0 and a large number.
